Episode Notes

When today’s guest, NYC Councilmember Shahana Hanif, ran for office, she knew it wasn’t going to be an easy job. So, she reframed the campaign– her race wasn’t just a job, it was a commitment to her city. A commitment to the neighborhood that raised her. Shahana, AKA Shahana from BK, is the first Muslim woman elected to New York City Council and the first woman Council Member for the 39th District. She’s a leader in policy that puts women, communities of color, and disability advocacy at the front of every decision. From organizing the kids on her block, to leading an entire city district, Shahana is here to talk representation and all it can offer.
